The Anatomy of a Practice
Sarah Scaife tunes into the world using a process of echo-location: drawing at the edge of listening. The nodes of her workings can range from a book to a conversation or a game. Between these nodes, lines reach out and loop back. They flow, knot, disperse and cluster. To make sense of this, Sarah employs diagramming - a current form of research drawing practice. This is art making "that presses against the art/life divide" (David Buuck); immersed, barely contained, permeable, yet given form. Like a jellyfish in the sea.
